This is a dish that I stumbled upon by accident. A few years ago I was on a road trip to Kodaikanal, one of the state most favourite hill stations in Tamil Nadu. Karandi omelette is a very popular Street food in Tamil Nadu. An omelette might be a breakfast special but in Tamilnadu just like many other parts of India, it’s also a meal accompaniment. The karandi omelette works really well with biriyani or even rice and rasam. It is also a perfect tea time or coffee time snack for winter or when you had some comfort on a rainy day.

Finally, I would like to highlight my other egg recipe collection with this post of the Karandi Omelette. It includes recipes like egg drop curry, egg bites , boiled egg bhurji etc. Further, I request you to check my other recipes collection like,
